  17. 17. THE LORD’S PRAYER Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. • God wants us to look to Him each day for our daily needs • A right relationship with God only comes when we have a right relationship with others • Requesting God’s guidance and protection from the things that hurt us spiritually
